5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the Best UB40 album yet, 17 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Promises And Lies (Audio CD)
This really is the best UB40 album short of their best of collections- it might be even better, because you hear the true reggae rhythms UB40 excel at, rather than the safer pop-Reggae mix record producers know will boost sales. It is a testiment to this album that six of the songs (out of 11) find themselves onto the best of UB40 vol. two, three of them onto the Very Best of UB40, and three were remixed on the Fathers Album in 2002.
Widely regarded as the best UB40 album, if not ever, than certainly of the 1990s, the only competition coming from Labour of Love 2. This album proves UB40 do not need to cover songs to produce great tracks- higher ground in particular is an amazing tune, and it really took me by surprise that it was written by the boys from Birmingham themselves- the same goes to Bring me Your Cup. Aside from that, c'est la vie and promises and lies add the conscience of this collection, sorry and a long long way add the energy. Can't Help Falling in Love is the track many people will recognise, but it is by far not the best tune on this album.
If you like UB40, buy this album. If you like Reggae of any form, buy this album. That's all there is to it.
